Run a Stonegate Pub - Garden House Durham, County Durham

About the Pub

The Garden House is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced entrepreneurial operator with a good record of growing a business by establishing a good food offer and put their own stamp on this iconic pub. There is potential to grow all aspects of the business including accommodation and bring the Garden House back to its former glory. The interior is notable for the reclaimed gymnasium floor, modish grey walls, rustic wooden tables, smart black-and-grey seating in the bar area and a more bordello style in the cosy dining area. There's also a conservatory that adds a wooden-clad ceiling and cast-iron pillars to the mix. The pub is serviced by one main bar, with open fires adding to the traditional cosy feel. The pub also has four letting bedrooms which are currently not utilised but could be an additional income stream. The external trading area consists of drinking and eating areas to the front and rear of the pub, ideal for extra trade during the warmer months.
